The first drawings of the 2023 Dodge Journey are revealed, and we definitely can expect many changes. This SUV is one of the selling ones in Dodge’s line of SUVs. It boasts a modern styling and an even superior interior design. Reportedly, this model had been sold in over 900,000 copies during its lifespan.
However, it will return more muscular using the new platform. It employs the Giorgio architecture that already supports the renowned Alfa Romeo Stelvio. Some modifications could come under the hood, and many assume that Journey will borrow the engine from the bigger sister Dodge Durango. Without any further ado, here’s everything we know so far.
2023 Journey Offers Two Powertrain Options
The upcoming 2023 Dodge Journey is very certainly going to be using the same engine as the outgoing model. This implies it will arrive with the same 2.4-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine capable of producing 173 horsepower and 165 lb-ft of torque. Regrettably, the optional 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine with 283 horsepower is no longer available.
Apart from the regular model, a rumor has it that the company may offer the SRT. If reports are accurate, the new Journey will be powered by the same engine as the Dodge Durango SRT. Durango’s engine develops 475 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque.
According to speculations, the new 2023 Dodge Journey will be based on the Alfa Romeo Stelvio’s rear-wheel-drive Giorgio chassis. If this is accurate, the Journey should have considerably enhanced driving characteristics and a sportier design.
The forthcoming vehicle is based on Stelvio’s basic form and incorporates some vintage Dodge aesthetic features. The general appearance is more muscular, and we can spot that the headlights are influenced by the Charger, much as the taillights are inspired by the Durango. The black satin top and Hellcat wheels add sportiness to this SUV.
As previously said, the forthcoming 2023 Dodge Journey is an SUV with an exceptionally luxurious cabin that seats seven passengers. It appears to be more modern on the interior and is undoubtedly more attractive than its Durango brother. In general, the room is good up front, average in the second row, and squeezing in the back. The seats are quite comfy and are upholstered in a hard-wearing yet easy-to-clean fabric.
Apart from comfort, the Journey SUV is full of cutting-edge technology. This small SUV has the new 8.4-inch Uconnect infotainment system with tactile controls for the sound and temperature systems. However, the Crossroad trim level has more features. This model comes with a remote start system, 9-inch rear entertainment system, heated front seats, heated steering wheel, and GPS.
2023 Dodge Journey Price, Release Date
The 2023 Dodge Journey drawings are already online, and it boasts a more athletic design. Many predict that this modern SUV will debut next year, most likely in the summer. According to the latest reports, the base model would cost $30,000, which is a $2000 increase over the previous version. If the SRT model truly arrives, it will almost certainly cost more than $50,000.
